This has been building here, and is just becoming audible.
Abt SINPO 35223 with storm noise, fading

It's a little difficult to tell where RTN programming ended and BRI began.  It seemed to me that abt 0208-0240 was the BRI segment.

0201 Phil Collins - Don't Lose My Number, Fleetwood Mac - Everywhere, Bruce Springsteen - Pink Cadillac
0208 Pretty sure I heard the BRI ID and ment of RTN; voice was not the normal RTN op
0210 Unid song - Winwood?
0215 Unid song
0218 Unid dance/rap
0222 Poss ID; cud not get it; the IDs do not seem to be at the level of the music, and are hard to hear
0223 Dance/"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" mix
0229 Dance track w/trumpet
0240 Balkan Radio International ID and addy; "Hope you liked the show"

guessing that this is a return to RTN...

0241 David Essex - Rock On
0249 RTN ID and addy, Golden Earring - R Love, Queen - Another One Bites the Dust, Doobies - China Grove, Long Train
        signal has built nicely here to S8 - S9, good audio on peaks

Callin' it a night here.
Thanks for the show Balkan Radio!
Thanks for the relay and the shout RTN!

4/12/12, 6924.8 AM, 0250z: Golden Earring "Radar Love", Queen "Another One Bites the Dust", Doobie Brothers "Long Train Running".  ID's barely audible, can only tell that it sounds like gmail addy.
0309z: Stones "Miss You"
0317z: Partial ID, "radio" and "dot com" audible, along with what sounded like cuckoo sounds?  Robert Palmfur "Bad Case of Loving Me"
0322z: D'amn Jello "Cruisin'"
0325z: Heard clear RTN ID, shout out to me (thanks!), "first video they played on MTV" and Buggles "Video Killed the Radio Star"

Jussst barely audible enough to copy familiar songs.  No clear copy of IDs.  Huge static crashes, some pesque jibber jabber adjacent.

Heard here on the overnight SDR recording. Mostly an S8 signal, but very high t-storm static levels, also around S7 or S8 made for very tough copy. The audio would pop up out of the noise every now and then, but overall not easy to listen to.

Dance music over the noise heard at 0213z. And again around 0230z. The dance music really punches through the noise.

ID heard at 0239z.
